Season's Tweetings 2017


I stamped my Lawn Fawn birds with Memento black ink, colored them in with Copics and used the matching die to cut them out. The ornament was die cut and stamped with the tree branch using a Rich Cocoa Memento Marker. I stamped the leaves using Stampin Up's Wild Wasabi and colored them in with Copic Markers. The birds are popped onto the ornament with foam tape. The ornament cap was die cut using some silver card stock. There are 3 layers for added strength.  I die cut another blue ornament for the back. The heart was die cut from my card base and I also die cut a mat using the next biggest heart as well.

This is a view from the inside of the front
There is a full heart on the outside and a partial one on the inside for extra strength. I ended up trimming the top point of the heart because my jump ring wasn't quite big enough to swing freely.  I tried a bigger one but it hung to low.  I stamped the sentiment using my Misti to get it in just the right place.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends (birds) and Winter Sparrows (branch, leaf, and sentiment)

Merry Grinchmas


I tried turning the dog from the Smiley Happy Critters Two set into Max from the Grinch Movie. I used one of the antlers from Silly Monsters Incognito three set.  I die cut all my GRINCH letter (three for each) and a fourth for the G, R and parts of the I and H to make them all the same height. I also sponged the letters.  I stamped two dog images and fuzzy cut them out. I cut the back legs off the front one and popped it up over the back layer. The antler is sandwiched between the two.  I add some sequins to finish it off.

Tweet Tidings of Joy


I started playing around the Power Poppy digital Chickadee last night and colored him with Copic markers, I added my Wink of Stella and Stickles and let it dry over night.  This morning when I went to finish the card I realized I had made the panel to big to die cut down or mat so I left it as is and adhered it to my card front.  I used two Chickadee images.  One is flipped and part of it was used on the bottom right of the card. They are both rotated a bit to create the scene.

Get your Meow on !


I had so much fun creating my kitty sweater yesterday and since I still had the supplies out I had to play...

I made the gray kitty sweater and then decided to make a colorful one masking the fish for the background.

When I first stamped the fish and started to color, it didn't look 'so good'... but the more I added some shading, the better it got...  Well, that is my opinion... lol
The sentiment was computer generated with my Printmaster Program.

Stamps: Neat & Tangled Kitty's Favorite Things (Kitty and fish), Impression Obsession Knit Cover-a-Card background (gray sweater)
Supplies: My Favorite Things Comfy Sweater Die-namics, foam tape, Papertrey Ink and Neenah white card stock, Copic Markers: C00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, E93, 95, G00, 03, 05, YG01, 03, 05, 07, 21, 23, R24, 27, 29, 81, 83, 85, V04, 06, 09, YR4, 7, 15, Y13, 15, 19, B12, 14, 16, BG11, 13, 23, 32, 53, Memento black ink.

Practically Purr-fect Sweater


I started out thinking I was going to put the kitty in the sweater with his head popping up, but then I decided to take a different approach for the Neat & Tangled Color challenge. Color something you wouldn't normally color.  I stamped the knit background onto my die cut sweater and then stamped just the Kitty's head over it.  I probably should have used a lighter ink for the knit, but in the end I just went over the kitty several times trying to make it a bit darker.  Using the Misti was perfect for this technique. I ended up using black pearls for his eyes so they would pop. I also colored the frame using three different gray Copics.  The frame is glued to the card front and the sweater and banner are both popped up using foam tape.
